Notable Back Stagers
After years in the wilderness I’ve found some of what I saw and heard that night. Incredible. Memories of the set list faded years ago; Janis and Ron have stayed with me ever since that song and that night. They polished off the bottle of SC during their lurid give and take. Among several notable attendees watching from back stage, I recall Frank Zappa.

This is a fantastic window into the scene.
Check out the stage banter before Lovelight. Seconds before they start to play Jerry says, "Aw Fuck!" and Pig immediately says, "Good idea". And away they go with Janice in tow.

Good stuff; I think the other part of this sbd, with that Attics and NFA > St. Stephen > UJB, is even better. This one is just goofball fun with Janis and Pig; this one hissssssesssss in that archaic cassette-tape style, but it definitely listenable. Jerry turns on the wah-wah halfway through that raunchy Lovelight to add some fireworks!

It aint music, but it's a lot of fun man !
Euphoria Ballroom, what a fitting name. Feel no pain at all ! I love when Janis pleads 'Come on man, get it together' or Ron growls 'Turn around'! I can only imagine seeing this live by the crowds reaction. Hard to believe Janis was dead within 10 weeks. RIP Janis, Ron, & Jerry
They'd all just got off the train, and what a difference a year makes. The other time Janis sits in on Lovelight, June 7, 1969 sounds so different. Right from the begining, this one just burns ! Seriously, only 5 stars ? 'Sustain', I've never heard a sweeter Candyman either.
I just want to thank everyone involved, from Archive, to the person who pressed "play-record" that day, to the people who's hard work and love of the music made this sound so crisp today. Let there be songs, to fill the air.
Get it while you can !

Do I hear Janis Joplin's voice at the end of Candyman? WHY YES IT IS!

This is the same source tape as the one used by Scott Clugston but the transfer here from analog to digital was done by Charlie Miller. Scott worked from a transfer I did with a Marantz 500 Pro burner.
